Need Writing Help?


BAD CHOICES MAKE GOOD STORIES: CONVERSATIONS ABOUT WRITING is my first nonfiction book, and it's a compilation of everything I've learned about writing, publishing, and the tools authors need to create stories and build community. 

To publish it, my critique group  formed an independent press, and this is the first book we've produced together. I'm so proud of our work, and hope you'll check it out. It's available in paperback and ebook wherever books are sold.
